This was an art project done as part of the ma3t design collective.
It was conceived and designed to challenge the peoples attitude to social responsibility.
It puts users in the unexpected situation where you choose how much you pay for sweets. The amount you pay will not change the quantity of sweets you get, it will change the quantity the next person gets.
Over time this will reflect the users collective attitude towards working together for the greater good. if people work together, they will always get more than they pay for, if not they will only get what they pay for.
The project was shown at the ICA in London and travelled to a number of different venues across london measuring different areas levels of altruism.
